NW, and more specifically the business department, is looking forward to adding Song and Anderson to the faculty this fall. Both professors will bring valuable experience from their fields that they will be able to use in the classroom. Additionally, both professors are excited to get to know students personally. They desire to make their faith and relationships with Christ known and to come alongside students in their own faith journeys.
Song and Anderson value the mission of NW and want to help students understand they can make a big impact for Christ and for the kingdom no matter where they land after their time here.
